Low-intensity exercise increases strength and function in old adults, but it is unclear if change occurs secondary to "neural adaptation" or to intrinsic muscle adaptation. Whether function and strength change concomitantly is also unclear. We examined effects of a modest intensity, 10-session exercise program on muscle mass, contractile force, and function(More)
Twenty-nine patients with varying degrees of renal insufficiency were given a single intravenous dose of metronidazole (500 mg). Plasma and urinary concentrations of metronidazole and two major metabolites were determined using a specific high performance liquid chromatographic assay. The pharmacokinetic parameters of metronidazole elimination half-life,(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has now replaced open cholecystectomy for the treatment of gallbladder diseases. However, certain cases still require conversion to open procedures. This study identifies and evaluates risk factors that may predict conversion from laparoscopic to an open procedure. OBJECTIVES To identify and evaluate the predictive(More)
The removal of the anti-anaerobic antibiotic metronidazole has been studied in oliguric patients. The drug and its principal metabolite are rapidly removed by haemodialysis so that the plasma concentration quickly falls below the therapeutic range. Hence a further dose of metronidazole would be needed after dialysis to restore an adequate plasma(More)
